PROTEOIDEAE
 
Protea cynaroides, the king protea, is a flowering plant.
It is a distinctive member of Protea, having the largest 
flower head in the genus. The species is also known as
 giant protea, honeypot or king sugar bush. It is
widely distributed in the southwestern and southern parts
of South Africa in the  fynbos region.
 
The king protea is the national flower of South Africa. It also is
the flagship of the The Protea Atlas Project, run by the
South African National Botanical Institute
 
 
LEUCADENDRONS
 
Leucadendrons, also known as fillers or fynbos,are  
equally beautiful, and their foliage remains attractive
throughout the year. Again, there are a large number
of varieties that compliment  any protea in a stunning
bouquet, adding  delicate color and texture to the
strong appearance of the  protea  flower head.
They are a gift from God for us to enjoy and 
 utilize, and bring much pleasure and peace
to soothe our rushed lifestyles.. 
 
 

 

 

 

 
Established in 2007
 
Robiq Proteas started with a few species of Proteaceae which were already well adapted to the climatic conditions prevailing in the area.
Given that the wild P. caffra grows naturally in the area, it was expected that commercially grown Proteas too would do well  in the slightly acidic soil that is found in the area.
